Securing your MySQL queries with sprintf

in PHP added by Wildhoney, on 13/9/2007 programming security sessions

Not only will your new found knowledge help you when it comes to security, but sprintf and its twin brother with a slight genetic mismatch, printf, are on hand to make your PHP code look a lot more programmer-friendly.

Understanding the Life of a Session

in PHP added by Wildhoney, on 15/9/2007 advanced tutorials security session sessions

One of the most vast misconceptions in the PHP world is how sessions really do work. I'm fairly confident most of us know how to start sessions, terminate sessions, regenerate session IDs and easily pass data from 1 page to another. But do you really know how they work inside out?
